The Jazz Gallery is an exemplary institution. It presents and supports innovative jazz artists. Jazz, by its nature, is an evolving medium and requires venues with innovative programming to keep it on the cutting edge. I The Jazz Gallery charges reasonable prices. I try to see shows there when ever I am in New York. My experiences have always been positive. It is also well regarded by jazz musicians and you often see them in the audience.
The Jazz Gallery is the most unique music venue in New York City. Musicians love the venue because they are allowed the freedom of playing original compositions. The listening experience for the audience is wonderful as well. The organization deserves as much support as possible. Dr Alan Beckles
Over my years involved with the music culture of New York, I have always found my experiences at The Jazz Gallery to be that week's highlight every visit. The staff is warm and knowledgeable, plus they book a myriad performers, presenting both well known and little known with the same enthusiasm. Musicians like Taylor Ho Bynum, Steve Lehman or Tony Malaby, are a few examples of artists who have developed and widened the listener's aural palette through The Jazz Gallery.
The facility itself has seating for each performance and is clean with bathrooms and free water. It is a location to nurture music appreciation, not sell drinks and food or for "hanging out". I greatly appreciate The Jazz Gallery for its devotion to the arts.
I had been meaning to go to the Jazz Gallery. I knew many of the folks who worked hard to ensure its success, and I love jazz. Actually, I'm obsessed with jazz. Anyway, I went on Valentine's Day this year and got to see just how fabulous the Jazz Gallery is. The space is compact, but has everything you need to experience live music properly. The set I saw was outstanding! I want to get more involved in the Jazz Gallery. I definitely want to see more performances there. I can't think of a venue I have been to in the last year that I enjoyed more. And I am a big fan of live music. So, kudos to the Jazz Gallery! I can't wait to go back!
The Gallery is one the few venues that are really all about the music.
Their integrity & commitment is very much needed and very much appreciated. Thank you!
this is a wonderful place that nurtures and supports emerging jazz artists, as well as providing a chance to experience what we all love about jazz.
the staff is great and so committed to what they're doing.
Just want to say the Jazz Gallery is an amazing, incredible place! At a time when other nonprofits are folding or cutting back, New York is extremely fortunate to have the Jazz Gallery offering music at the forefront of contemporary jazz. Love your programming!
In an age where Art and true talent has taken a backseat to forced cookie cutter proclamations of American "Idols", the jazz Gallery is like a refreshing oasis! I drive all the way from Philadelphia to New York city to experience the Jazz gallery. It is a small place with no dazzling decor or smells of delicious food cooked by an expert chef. There is no fancy bar or stage sparkling with lights. There is only a small stage, chairs facing the stage and visual Art on the surrounding walls. The Jazz Gallery is a relaxed place to come and enjoy visual art and the art of jazz! I love it!!
